Calling all volunteers - or should it be "waving at all volunteers"? Anyways, the time has come to request individuals who are part of the performing arts scene to volunteer for interviews (e-mailed or through Instant Messaging) for a project I'm working on.
Who am I seeking? If you fit one or any (or all) of the roles below, we want you!
Audience Patron (person who attends theater merely for the enjoyment of seeing live performances unfold in front of their very eyes).
Interpreters (Shakespeare... Musical... Classic... Contemporary... we welcome all!)
Actors/Actresses (See note regarding interpreters). All Deaf, HOH and Hearing actors welcome!
Professionals (Those who work directly with performing arts organizations. Are you an usher? Do you work in the Box Office? Manage a company?)
Creative Team (Do you spearhead your own production as a director? Create the set? Sew up like mad on costumes? Write up the plays (and musicals) that we put on for the audiences?)
Educators (Do you teach Drama? Dance? Both? Or do you implement performing arts into your curriculum?)
Parents (Especially those with Deaf/HOH children/ teenagers/ college students).
Advocate (Don't fit any of those above but still care enough to support those who venture into the field? You're still welcome!)
If interested, please send an e-mail to me at ASLPerformingArts@gmail.com (or leave a note under Comments regarding further information).
Looking forward to having a chitchat with all of you would-be volunteers regarding the magical world of performing arts! (Don't be shy - come on, come out!)
Quick Update: Upon request, two more links to schedules of interpreted/captioned performances in London and the rest of Great Britain have been added to the list on the right. TheatreSign focuses on the London metro area while SPIT (Signed Performances in Theatre) covers the entire country.
